When God said ‘go forth and multiply’, it was an instruction to begin humanity. Some continue to follow this direction, some now see that mandate as fulfilled. Those who go against the tide of moral persuasion have faced our human existential crisis with a firm, unshakeable belief.
Colin Dardis’s collection takes a certain moral stance that concerns the decision of a couple to not have children, despite societal expectations and familial pressure to start a family. It is a modern love poem, a bold declaration that they are happy and content without children along their journey.
